Members of Morhine (aka The Elastic Waste Band) are doing a Wed night residency at Atwoods Tavern through February (at least). Yes, that Morphine.
I had heard great things about these shows and had seen Jeremy Lyons' excellent opening set for Eilen Jewell at Me & Thee. When I finally made it out to see them, they did not disappoint. They rock.
If you're ready for a break from the winter blues, this is a good excuse. An excellent cure for pain, if you will.
Here's an MTV video of the original band, featuring the late Mark Sandman:
Members of Morphine is Dana Colley (electric baritone sax, vocals), Jerome Deupree (drums), Jeremy Lyons (electric guitar, 2-string slide bass, vocals)
